I am using a glass encoder 5 micron to drive my 320 gecko.
It work fine on the kitchen table but now the question is how to send the signal back to my DRO ?
I use the sn75176A differential bus transceiver i have A,B and NOT A, NOT B.
I use AB line for the gecko and will use notAnotBfor the DRO
I want to use the power suply of the DRO for the encoder
I will have to put a 470 ohms to the term6 and term7 on the gecko
I will have to connect the ground of my encoders DRO to the gecko encoder- do this mean that the ground of my gecko will be linked to the ground of the DRO?
if so what is the danger ?
I presume that the external(DRO) 5V should not be connected to encoder+
